The Office of Multicultural Affairs has always believed that every student has the potential to receive a degree in higher education, it is a matter of having the right opportunities. We understand that life has obstacles that don't always make it easy for everyone to stay on the path of success, but not having the finances shouldn't be one of them. OMA works to ensure that students get the tools that they require to be successful student here at UNK.
